Notes This is a revised and updated version of Steve Biddulph's Raising Boys. First published in 1995, Raising Boys was an instant bestseller and to date has sold over a million copies world wide. Few books have stayed in the hearts and minds of parents everywhere as much as Raising Boys. Now in an increasingly complicated and nuanced world, raising boys to become emotionally strong, kind and resilient men is even more important and relevant. In response to calls from parents around the world Steve Biddulph has completely updated and revised his seminal work to include all the latest international information and advice for parents on all the key issues of today such as : gender brain and hormonal development including latest findings on testosterone, transgender/gay/sexuality development, boys and crying, boys and 'bad' behaviour, reading and communication, countering the effects of porn. Steve says: "Right now, the world badly needs good men. Your boy can be one of those who grow up so much better, and help to heal the world. Thank you for joining the boy revolution. As the 21st century rolls on, it's badly needed. Enjoy your boy, love him well, and set him free to fly in his own special way."
